    The Secret History of Food -...

    An irreverent, surprising, and entirely entertaining look at the little-known history surrounding the foods we know and love 
     
    Is Italian olive oil really Italian, or are we dipping our bread in lamp oil? Why are we masochistically drawn to foods that can hurt us, like hot peppers? Far from being a classic American dish, is apple pie actually . . . English? 
    “As a species, we’re hardwired to obsess over food,” Matt Siegel explains as he sets out “to uncover the hidden side of everything we put in our mouths.” Siegel also probes subjects ranging from the myths—and realities—of food as aphrodisiac, to how one of the rarest and most exotic spices in all the world (vanilla) became a synonym for uninspired sexual proclivities, to the role of food in fairy- and morality tales. He even makes a well-argued case for how ice cream helped defeat the Nazis. 
    The Secret History of Food is a rich and satisfying exploration of the historical, cultural, scientific, sexual, and, yes, culinary subcultures of this most essential realm. Siegel is an armchair Anthony Bourdain, armed not with a chef’s knife but with knowledge derived from medieval food-related manuscripts, ancient Chinese scrolls, and obscure culinary journals. Funny and fascinating, The Secret History of Food is essential reading for all foodies.

    The author and filmmaker known as the “Chile Chica” serves up the pepper’s “role in New Mexico’s history, heritage, culture, and of course, cuisine” (SantaFe.com). 
     
    To some, chile might be considered a condiment, but in New Mexico it takes center stage. Going back four centuries, native tribes, Spanish missionaries, conquistadors and Anglos alike craved capsicum, and chile became infused in the state’s cuisine, culture and heritage. Beloved events like the annual Fiery Foods Show bring together thousands of artisans specializing in chile. The Chile Pepper Institute at New Mexico State University devoutly researches the complexity of chile and releases carefully crafted varieties. Legendary farms like Jimmy Lytle’s in Hatch and Matt Romero’s in Alcalde carry on generations-old practices in the face of dwindling natural resources. Acclaimed restaurants continue to find inspiration in chile, from classic dishes to innovative creations. Join local author and award-winning documentary filmmaker “Chile Chica” Kelly Brinn Urig for the enchanting history of chile. 
     
    “A colorful book loaded with photos, most taken by Urig as she traveled the state interviewing people and tasting traditional foods . . . The Chile Chica and her generation are the future of the chile industry if it’s to survive. Pay attention to them.” —Santa Fe Travelers 
     
     
     
    “For both the film and the book she let chile and the people who grow it and cook it do the talking.” —Albuquerque Journal
